A lovely ART DECO Bretby Lamp with DRAGON Decoration. The lamp dates to around 1938 and is in perfect condition bar one small shallow chip of the base rim. A good sized piece the lamp base is 12 inches in height with a wide point of 71/2". Pure white in colour. Bretby Art Pottery, more properly known as Tooth & Co. Ltd., was started in 1883 by Henry Tooth and William Ault. Ault left after four years to set up his own pottery at Swadlincote. The company produced both inexpensive pressed wares and more costly thrown art pottery. Bretby stayed in the hands of the Tooth family until 1933, and after the second World War became known as Tooth and Company Limited Bretby Art Pottery.
